Synopsis

The Writers' War is a collection of excerpts from outstanding accounts of the First World War, a terrifying conflict that would otherwise be beyond our ability to imagine. These extracts bring the human experience of war to life - from the terror of bombardment and the camaraderie of military service to those on the home front.



The writing reflects a range of nationalities and personalities. It includes memorable poetry, fiction and journalism. Some great names of modern English literature appear, such as Arthur Conan Doyle, D. H. Lawrence and Rudyard Kipling. In addition, there are accounts by foreign authors such as novelists Edith Wharton and Henri Barbusse, and flying ace Manfred von Richthofen.



The Writers' War offers essential insights to anyone interested in modern history or early twentieth-century literature and shows the human dimension to this world-changing event.

Felicity Trotman was born in Belfast, moving to Wiltshire as a child. Having studied graphic design and taken a History degree, she worked in publishing. She was a fiction editor at Puffin and at Macmillan Children's Books. Eventually turning freelance, she added history and military history to her children's specialty - though she admits that she prefers firing guns to writing about them. She is a churchwarden, school governor, and has spent many happy years as a member of the English Civil War Society.
